Not all waterfront property is created equal…not in the least!
Consider this truly one-of-a-kind, landmark property situated at the end of Gull Point Road in the picturesque South Beach neighborhood of world-renowned Sea Pines Resort! Enjoying 270-degrees of stunning views along the Calibogue Sound, Braddock Cove and the surrounding tidal marshes, this stately residence enjoys ever-changing vistas, sunrises and sunsets with unparalleled privacy and seclusion akin to a private Island. Plus, with a 7 acre deeded open space treed area fronting the Calibogue Sound, this 1.75-acre double-lot parcel offers one of the most compelling and special locations in all of Hilton Head Island.
Accessed via a circular driveway off a landscaped cul-de-sac at the tip of Gull Point Road, the property welcomes you with its rich, manicured landscaping and specimen trees as the drive winds to the front of the residence. The broad and tall home is elevated with a center-location front entry, adorned with a covered porch and double entry doors.
The entry foyer greets you with its tiled flooring, white-washed wood paneling, and two-story ceiling as it ties into the main hallway leading left and right across the first floor plan. As a clever privacy feature during times of entertaining, there are twin pocket doors on either side of the foyer, allowing the space to be sectioned off from the balance of the first floor living and bedroom spaces. As it leads to multiple bedrooms and living spaces, the long hallway stretching across the first floor also provides access to a dedicated laundry room, a large coat closet, a storage closet, twin glass display cases, a utility closet, and a second office/study with extensive built-in bookcases and storage cabinet.
The first of two guest suites is located at the back left corner of the first floor plan, featuring a continuation of paneled walls, recessed lighting, overhead fan, multiple windows with outstanding views, and a private bath with tile flooring, extended-length vanity, and walk-in shower. The suite also features a built in dresser, bookcases, and a walk-in closet.
The second guest suite is finished with carpeted flooring, recessed lighting, ceiling fan, multiple closets, and a 2-part bathroom with built-in dresser, extended-length vanity with built-in mirror, and a tile-surround combination shower/tub.
Opposite the second guest suite, the home features a dedicated laundry room complete with utility sink, full-size laundry machines, built-in folding counter with storage cabinetry, built-in ironing board, and a handy laundry shoot from the second floor.
Situated on the opposite side of the first floor plan from the bedrooms, one of the more popular living spaces in the home is the open-design family room, featuring carpeted flooring, recessed lighting, integrated speakers, built-in drop-down theater screen, custom bar with sink and ice machine, and storage closet with beverage fridge. The family room further features two large storage closets, sliding glass door access to the front patio, sliding glass door access to the expansive back deck, and dramatic water views.
Just off the family room is a secondary, spiral staircase for convenient access to the breakfast room/kitchen above, as well as a dedicated pool bathroom, finished with tile flooring, private water closet, and tile-surround walk-in shower.
For outstanding exterior living space, the home features an expansive deck, partially covered, partially uncovered. Enjoying shade from nearby Magnolia and Pine trees, the deck features built-in benches as it flows toward the home’s private swimming pool. The black-bottom swimming pool is paired with mature landscaping for a very natural, private setting. Adjacent to the pool deck is a dedicated, separate hot tub, as well as a nearby outdoor shower. And, at the back right corner of the property, the home features a custom-designed gazebo, complete with built-in TEC barbecue grill.
A sunlight filled staircase with open spindles and risers climbs to the second floor, landing halfway at a picturesque corner window with views over the front of the property. The carpeted upper hallway reaches left and right for convenient access to the master suite, den, living room, kitchen, and dining room. The light-filled hallway also gives way to a guest powder room, two mechanical closets, and a charming walk-out balcony overlooking the front of the property.
The oversized master suite is positioned privately at the far left and of the second floor plan. This light and bright bedroom suite features a large bedroom with tall ceiling and exposed beams, wall of glass overlooking the Calibogue Sound, and a sliding glass door access to a private balcony. The suite further enjoys a large walk-in closet complete with carpeted flooring, built-in mirrors, wall safe, recessed lighting, skylight, and a substantial built-in dresser bureau. The lavish bathroom serving the master suite features tile flooring, garden soaking tub with marsh views, cultured marble double-vanity, built-in cultured marble bench, waterfront shower with built in bench and window, and a private water closet with commode and bidet. The master suite is made complete with a cedar-lined seasonal closet, and the pull-down stairway for convenient attic access.
A handsome den sits opposite the main stairway on the waterfront side of the home, and enjoys some of the best views in the house as it boasts dark-stained wood flooring, wood paneling, and extensive bookcases. With its dramatic wall of windows, the water views reach for miles, while the warm and comfortable space enjoys the added ambiance of a double-sided, raised-hearth fireplace.
The light and bright living room runs adjacent to the den and enjoys plush carpeted flooring, raised-hearth, double-sided fireplace, cathedral ceiling with recessed lighting, and two walls of custom built-in bookcases and cabinetry. The dramatic wall of glass overlooking the view continues to a sliding glass door for convenient access to the large walk-out balcony/deck with 270° views.
The adjacent kitchen/breakfast room is open to the living room, providing a wonderful, casual flow to the floor plan. The kitchen and breakfast room feature handsome tile flooring, extensive cabinetry, a built-in desk, and a full complement of appliances including Whirlpool fridge/freezer with in-door ice and water service, Thermador stainless steel double wall ovens, GE dishwasher, and Kenmore spare freezer. Other special features of the kitchen include recessed lighting, a double-swing door to the dining room, and a quintessential breakfast room with three walls of windows for stunning views.
The formal dining room is located on the front of the second floor plan and features wood flooring, a wall of built-in mirrors with custom glass buffet, multiple windows, and a private wine cellar with pocket door access.
Situated privately above the carport, the home features a cozy, tucked-away, in-home office, complete with recessed lighting, ceiling fan, cathedral ceiling, and multiple built-in bookcases.
Other notable features of the home include a single-car garage, single-car carport, and an outdoor workshop/storage closet.
Located within the Gull Point community, the owner of this residence enjoys access to the private community amenities, including tennis courts, and a private marina where each resident is allotted a dedicated boat slip. Plus, the wonderful restaurants, shopping, water sports/charters, and live entertainment of South Beach Marina are just a short drive away…as is one of the most picturesque stretches of beach found on Hilton Head Island!
